TIME SLIPS BY!

It’s almost been a month since I’ve posted anything on this awesome blog.  That is crazy!

It’s just another example of how time slips by!  The last almost month has been full of so many things I can reflect upon.

The close of the school year always has me thinking about the great positives that this year brought.  I know some negative things happened, but as usual, I choose to focus on the positives.  I understand the negatives help us learn too, but the positives are the things we want to repeat or build on the most.

Positives…

Well, first we made it to today!  DUHHHHH!  Some people never ever never look at it like that, but really, think about it. YOU MADE IT! Yay!

Successes:  There were so many at OCHS!  We had teams win district, go to playoffs and succeed like never before.  We had our academics soar like eagles, art works bring medals home, ag kids go to state and smiles on faces that some thought would never appear!  We had teachers do great things through lessons, extra curricular and life-long learning experiences.  We had successful pep-rallies, 5ks and one of the best field days we call “COLOR WARS” we’ve ever had.  Our principals are amazing.  Our teachers are super awesome.  Our students…THE REASON we do what we do!

Personally, I’ve felt pride and honor in teaching students, joy in working with co-workers and happiness in living the life of a Clawson.

My own children have grown another year and they don’t cease to amaze me in the things they can do. God blesses me with more POSITIVES than I could have ever imagined!

Looking at memories of the year, of the last decade of just yesterday, I can say I KNOW time does slip by, but I say that in a positive light.  I do not mourn for yesterday.  I rejoice in the fact that yesterday happened and that today is happening and that tomorrow is gonna bring wonderful new things to add to my TIME here.

While traveling through, this world of sorrow,  I’m on my way to Gloryland.  I’ll not turn back for some tomorrow, my trails here–I’LL UNDERSTAND.

That is from the I WANT TO KNOW MORE song.  I see trials as just what we go through.  They may be positive or negative.  Either way, we will understand one day why it all happened and until then I will be in constant THANKSGIVING for it all!

Time does slip by!  …but oh what a wonderful ride it is!

I AM A SUCCESS!

Because I’m overweight…am I supposed to feel INADEQUATE?  ..am I supposed to feel incapable?  ..am I supposed to feel unloved? ..am I supposed to feel not-good-enough? …am I UNSUCCESSFUL?

NO NO NO NO and NO!!!

Yes, I’m overweight.  I’m not the “perfect” size.  I do not wear bikinis.  HAHA!  Never have, never will.  I do not run.  Another HAHA!

I may not be able to outrun someone, but I can do so much that others don’t do, want to do or have the talent to do.

Society may look at me and think, “Wow, she probably eats a lot of donuts.”  When in actuality, I HATE DONUTS.  Ice cream is not something I long for.  I don’t really like pie.  Chocolate, yes, but …

OK, WHAT I’M SAYING IS:  Society does not KNOW me.  They don’t know my likes, dislikes, talents, struggles, victories, etc.  I do not care what SOCIETY thinks.  They can put me in this group of sad people which need to be “fixed” or guided.  Still, they do not know me. Whatever label, group or stereotype I get associated with… It does not define who I am.

I am a strong, smart, beautiful and very much talented person.  I encourage and help others.  I have a great smile!  I keep a positive attitude that I believe this world needs more of.  I get whatever job needs to be done–done.  I shine the light of Jesus, because He is in my heart!  I am NOT UNSUCCESSFUL.

The scales don’t own me.  The number of pounds my body is does not dictate my life.  The fact that I don’t run does not mean I can’t be a winner.  I can and will do things that are extraordinary and awesome.  I will be victorious and overcome things in this life.  The fact that I don’t lose one pound doing it has NO BEARING ON MY ABILITY TO SUCCEED.

MY Success is not measured by society even though society may think it does.  Success is what I believe it to be in my life.

Here are the top reasons why I KNOW I’m successful—

JESUS LOVES ME and I LOVE JESUS!  So glad I succeeded in asking HIM into my heart.  …SUCCESS!

I have read the ENTIRE BIBLE…SUCCESSSSSSSSSS!!!

I am a pretty good mom, wife and teacher…SUCCESS!  (I have papers to prove it which include personal reference letters, anniversary cards and a few teachery awards from various individuals and groups)

I have friends who love me.  (again, papers, emails, text messages and memories to prove it)…SUCCESS!

I’m happy.  …SUCCESS!

and guess what…

I walked 40 minutes on the treadmill this morning and quite briskly, might I add.   I didn’t run, but to me, I was a success on that mill!  I find my success in all kinds of places.  Perhaps losing weight may be one of those someday.  I have found it in the past and may in the future, but no matter what… it is not the only thing that defines my success.

I AM A SUCCESS!

–and YOU ARE TOO!  Find your successes…do not dwell on your failures.  God will guide you in finding them when you need help looking.  Do it!  FOCUS ON THE GOOD, always.

WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES PEOPLE LIKE THAT?

It’s so frustrating to be around crazy selfish, weirdly jealous people.  What makes them that way?  What makes them not want anyone to succeed?  What makes them want everyone around them to be absolutely miserable?

Sometimes they pretend to want progress, but then find every reason to extinguish all efforts to do so!  WHAT IN THE WORLD!?

Is it a power trip they are riding?  Is it the need to be the only one “succeeding” in anything?  Is it INSANITY?  What is it!?

No really, that is what I want to know today.  I have my opinions.  I do, we all know I do, but today, I just want to know yours.

WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES PEOPLE LIKE THAT? ((COMMENT PLEASE!))
